SE’s Huss, Yung unanimous all-NCC
After winning a share of their second straight league title, the St. Edmond girls recently earned four selections on the all-North Central Conference basketball teams.
Junior Alli Huss and sophomore Anna Yung were each named as unanimous picks to the top squad for the Gaels, who finished 19-3 overall and 16-2 in the NCC.
Landing on the second team for SEHS was sophomore Jaci Stumpf, while senior Hannah Lentsch was voted to the third squad.
Both Huss and Yung were also recently honored by the IGCA as 2A Central all-district performers.
Huss, a 5-foot-10 forward, averaged 13.1 points per game, along with a team-high 8.5 rebounds, 3.0 steals and 1.9 blocks. She was previously tabbed to the all-league first squad last winter.
Yung paced the green and white in scoring (14.4), total points (317), field goals (124) and three-pointers (21). The 5-foot-8 guard added 5.5 boards, 4.5 assists and 3.0 steals a night.
“It’s a nice honor for both Alli and Anna to gain first team status as underclassmen,” said SEHS head coach Scott Messerly. “They were very good scorers all year and leaders, and I’m proud to have them both on the first team.”
Stumpf, a 5-foot-4 point guard, contributed 8.8 points, while leading the Gaels in total assists (115) and steals (80).
Lentsch produced 8.6 points and 7.2 rebounds an outing. A year ago, the 6-foot-0 center was a second team all-NCC nominee.
Algona (13-9 overall, 11-7 NCC) was represented on the top squad by junior Tangy Wiseman (8.7 points, 2.3 steals). Making the second team for the Bulldogs was senior Paige Yi (5.9 points, 2.5 steals).
For Humboldt (9-14, 6-12), senior Erica Lane (8.4 points, 8.7 rebounds) was chosen to the second squad. Junior Lauren Friesth (10.0 points, 4.7 rebounds) was recognized on the third team.
Senior Chelsi Lanus (8.6 points, 8.9 rebounds) managed a spot on the second squad for Bishop Garrigan (8-15, 6-12).
Clarion-Goldfield (8-15, 6-12) junior Jossie Sann (11.4 points, 5.1 rebounds) was pegged to the second team, while senior Stephanie Steiner (8.0 points, 2.8 rebounds) received third squad accolades.
Hampton-Dumont senior Taryn Barz and Iowa Falls-Alden senior Jamie Peterson each repeated as unanimous selections.
